Decolonization in Africa

Front Cover
Longman, 1996 - History - 298 pages
This text provides a historical account of the liquidation of the colonial control which European governments exercised during the first half of the 20th century. While the scope of the book is intercontinental, dealing with both Anglophone and Francophone Africa, attention is paid to the particular problems of different African regions and some attempt is made to illustrate the historic individuality of each country. While decolonization is defined in the narrower sense, as a process completed by independence, the book recognizes that many colonial influences endure thereafter.
